Latico Leathers - The Divine Nicoleta Tote Does It All6:00 am
Fabulous Latico Leathers makes gorgeous leather bags that are made for you and I - Modern women (there's a men's collection as well) who want to look good, but also have to tote around a whole whack of stuff in order to have a productive, efficient and stellar day.
I am captivated by the thin straps (just 1/2"). Strong enough to hold the weight of what I carry around on a daily basis, they are a delicate touch that adds real femininity. They are also a stretch longer than the Kate Spade Francis totes, making it easy to access your items without fuss.
Other standout features include pinking around the top hem and a thick swath of cut-out woven band in down the middle front. This intricate detailing along the top border adds interest and a graceful ladylike finish, while the middle ventilated panel adds an edgy cool vibe that keeps the bag looking too prim or plain.
I am just as crazy about the fabric lined interior. Thank you Latico, for not doing a plain purse liner. The bold black and cream zig zag diamond design is as stunning as the leather exterior. And a roomy zippered pocket inside makes grabbing keys, phone and other essentials quick and trouble-free.
Another genius move? The top zipper feature - something my other totes don't have, making it near to impossible to protect items during rain or snowstorms. Now I've got it covered.
And the spacious inside and wide flat base keeps everything together without it getting all piled up.
Five colours give you lots of style options: Washed Black, Distressed Brown Vintage Red, Crinkle Blue (pictured above), and Crackle White (pictured at top).
Other fetching totes in the collection include the Bowie, Michaela and Hawkin. And the Cameron clutch includes the decorative fish weave detail as seen in the Nicoleta.
